Mitsubishi recalls the i-MiEV
This week, Mitsubishi has issued a recall for the 2012 i-MiEV model: some sensors are incompatible with the self-diagnostic software used by the Safety Restraint System (SRS) system, causing the SRS warning light to go on when a diagnostic check occurs.
If the vehicle were to be driven with the warning light on, the inflatable curtain and side impact airbags may not deploy or the front airbags may deploy late. This could result in an increased risk of injury to an occupant during an accident. There are 49 units affected by this recall.
Mitsubishi i-MiEV owners are asked to get in touch with their dealer, who will replace the incompatible sensors as needed.
